This was the hardest game ball of the week to dish out. The defense was awful and the offense was mistake prone.

So, let's see here....

Jason Campbell had a nice stat line—until you get to the interceptions. And one of those interceptions was one of the worst I have ever seen and it came in the endzone. He's out.

Darren McFadden had a solid day. He had 18 touches for 123 yards. While that is sexy stat line for mortals, it is fairly pedestrian for DMC, who I suspect was limited by his groin injury.

Darrius Heyward-Bey had a career best day. Four catches for 115 yards. That is fantastic, but he had two drops. I'm not going to reward him for having two drops.

So, by process of elimination we arrive at Kevin Boss. Boss was at his blocking best and he showed off his hands. He had four catches for 78 yards, and he did it on just five targets. I'd also like to point out that those 78 yards are 16 better than Zach Miller has for the entire season with the Seahawks.
